Can I delete or hide old courses? The practice discussion board is making me crazy as it constantly sends me notifications from new students and I used it last semester.
This will depend on what policies are in place at your local institution. Have you tried contacting your local field admin or submitting a help ticket?
if students are still using it for practice, then maybe the best solution is not to delete the class, but instead to remove yourself from the course. That can be done in the People tab, if your permissions allow.
